"The best part about performing magic is when it happens completely in the spectator's hands.Aliceallows you to read someone's mind under the fairest conditions. Not only are you not fishing for letters or asking any questions, but you are not even touching the book. The spectator holds onto it from start to finish and you still know exactly which word they are thinking of. It's brilliant!" -Michael O'Brien
"Josh has created the HOLY GRAIL of Book Tests! I am amazed at the multi layers of methods in the newAlice (Zandman) Book Test. This book is POWERFUL enough for a professional stage/parlor performer, yet simple enough for the beginner doing one on one for family and friends!" - Mark Call

Alicealso includes the original Zandman Book Test method found in Gatsby, Sherlock, Scarlet, and Christmas Carol:
Riffle through pages until your spectator says stop.
They think of the first word on the page.
Without ever seeing the word they look at, you instantly know it!
Nothing to memorize. No forces. No questions.

This is a great method. Performed it for a few people, a couple days after receiving it. They inspected the book and had no idea how it was done. It is a great addition to my repertoire.

A wonderful book test! I've seen too many convoluted book tests - this one is not. It's straight forward, clean and easy to learn/perform. I love that the book can be passed out to the helper with no fear of exposure.

Mentalism is usually my least favorite branch of magic. It's 90% hokey-pokey dramatics and 10% actually magic. This, however, is not. Straight, upfront, and easy to preform. So amazing, I had to complete the set and buy Gatsby. Totally recommended, from the experts to even the least experienced of amateurs.

So very impressive that I had to get The Great Gatsby & Sherlock Holmes to complete the set. There is no way for anyone to catch on to this. Foolproof! and Amazing! With these two books you'll have an arsenal of mentalism tools to keep everyone in pure amazement! The video instruction is fantastic and with very little practice you'll be a master at this. The additional material just takes this over the top! Grab Scarlet too! With all three books you'll have super-powers!!
